Omani Meal

Blogging marathon # 44 – Next halt – Oman  


Oman or Muscat in Oman is a popular modern age city that has over time adopted various flavors across the world and evolve its own cuisine to meet the needs of a modern working woman’s lifestyle.

Omani limu / Omani Lemon is a delicacy which is essentially dried lemon. I looked around for them in Mumbai but could not find it . Next tried drying the lemons myself. I succeeded to some extent. But when the recipe called for crushing the lemon and using it in a powdered form I gave up. I could not risk making a dish out of one disaster – in my head the Mumbai lemons were no match in taste to what the Omani limus were meant to be. 

A little more research on building an Omani meal led me to this combination today.

An exotic Omani Style Biryani (chicken replaced with paneer), Mint yogurt, Almond Stuffed dates and Omani Sherbet
